Academic research inside organizations: Inputs, processes, and outcomes
The origins, processes, and outcomes of 141 academic research projects that were conducted in organizations and published in 4 top-tier industrial/organizational psychology and management journals over a 3-year period are examined. Three outcomes were assessed: 1. implementation of research findings, 2. academic-organizational relationship continuation, and 3. research impact. Results suggest a number of relationships between the way projects began, the relative contributions of organizations and authors to the research process, and eventual outcomes. Suggestions for future research are offered.
